Nestled in the lower elevation of Oregon's Cascade Mountains lies a temperate rain forest. It is here that the Trail of Ten Falls can be found. The trail and the falls descend to a forest floor covered with ferns, mosses, and wildflowers. You will also find stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar. While thousands visit the park every year, it is large enough for you to find quiet places to sit and watch for birds.

This is a great hike to take visiting friends and family to sample the PNW in all it's glory. It's a little long for younger kiddos, but very picturesque.

Great easy hike for the family!
I would recommend ages 8+, simply due to distance; however, if your younger child is used to long hikes I would say go for it!

was fun and the views were beautiful.

A favorite of mine. Well traveled, go on a week day if you have the option. My preference is to start at south falls and make your way up. It's easy that way, mostly downhill. And there's a couple forks in the road to make your hike 2 miles, 5 miles, of the full 7 mile loop. If the lodge or shop is open, they have maps of the trails.

Least favorite season to go is summer - just a bit dry and waterfalls aren't as epic.
